If you are a student you can attend public schools in the United Kingdom and experience the British way of life for either an Academic year, one semester or even for a shorter period of time. We also have schools that will accept groups of students (10 or more) together who would like to visit and attend a UK school for some time. We have several programs in day or residential schools. Programmes will be tailored according to what the student wishes to accomplish. Students can reside with British families, who provide students with room, board and above all willingness to make the student a part of their family, or if they prefer, they can live in residential accommodation.
For groups of students who wish to experience life in British State School we have the:
Buddy Programme (short term homestay programme)
For groups of secondary school children aged 12-16 September to July (Term time only)
This unique Buddy Programme offers your students a fantastic opportunity to experience life in a British state school, attending regular classes (such as science, history or maths) alongside a ‘buddy’ with whom they share the school day—classes, lunch and break times, sports afternoons, and any extra-curricular activities.
The ‘buddy’ will be specially selected by the school staff from among a group of motivated pupils who have chosen to be part of the Buddy Programme. Students and buddies are paired (one-to-one) for the duration of the programme, often resulting in friendships that last well beyond the flight home.
High School Integration Programme (short term homestay programme)
For Individual Students aged 11-16
September to July (Terms time only)
This High School Integration Programme offers students a fantastic opportunity to experience life in a British secondary school. Students will have an English ’buddy’ and attend regular classes (such as science, history or maths) for between 1-8 weeks.
Students will share classes, lunch and break times, sports afternoons, and any extra-curricular activities with their English friends, offering an excellent opportunity to improve their English.
Here too, students will be paired up with an “English ‘buddy” who will be specially selected by the school staff from among a group of motivated pupils who have chosen to be part of the Buddy Programme. Students and buddies are paired (one-to-one) for the duration of their stay often resulting in friendships that last well beyond the flight home.
Please note that schools do not accept 15-16 y.o. for the summer term or sometimes during exam time.
Students will stay with a private foster care Homestay family, carefully chosen for their warm hospitality and experience with accommodating younger international students.
Students will have their own bedroom unless they prefer to share. Each Homestay is visited by the Homestay Organiser and Welfare Officer to ensure the accommodation is to a good standard; DBS checks are carried out for adults in the accommodation and the local Child Safeguarding Service carry out regular checks on the private foster carers to ensure students are safe and happy at all times.
We allocate students in Homestay near to the schools but some students will need a bus pass to travel the short distance each day. Students will have breakfast and dinner at home and, on school days, a hot lunch with their English buddy.
